The search engine giant, Alphabet Inc.’s Google, had suspended some of its businesses with Huawei, requiring transfer of Huawei’s software and hardware products, however, Google's cancellation excluded some of Huawei products covered by open source licenses, at least two people familiar with the subject matter had unveiled on Sunday, the 19th of May 2019.
In point of fact, the latest call-off of Google could have been the first of many, as US government had been seeking to blacklist more and more Chinese companies. In effect, the world’s largest telecommunication equipment provider, China’s Huawei Technologies would lose access to the updates of Android operating system, while Huawei’s next smartphone version outside China would also lose access to Google Applications and services such as Gmail app and Google Play Store.
While details of the latest slump on Huawei, which could have been the first of many, had still been discussed internally at Google, Huawei’s lawyers had been assessing the impacts of its latest blacklisting by US Commerce Department, a Huawei spokesman said. Nevertheless, neither Huawei Technologies, nor US Commerce Department immediately commented on the issue.
